On another note...... those poor cavemen. They can't catch a break!

Thank you for the response!

I'm almost excited to do 1RMs now!

Thanks Kathryn! That makes sense.

Hi,

Thank you so much for this! Can you make it a "sticky" so we can easily get to it?

This sheet is really great, I did a few more today, and now I can focus on finishing the 3,4 and 5 star exercises first. Breaking it down this way really eases the stress of completing them. I'm going to wait for the WM software update before putting in the numbers, I'm not done yet anyway, so figured I'll just put aside some time and input all the numbers at once. Since I have not used the WM much, there is no point in getting too familiar with the current version if the new one will be out soon.

Thanks again for this!

Deb, I agree. It would be great if they would sticky this.

Thanks so much for the pictures. I started to do my 1rm, but was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of exercises available to choose from, and not sure what some of the exercises were. This chart is extremely helpful. Thank you.
